Glen Anaquod Tipi Raising

September 25, 2015 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

Free

“The Tipi Raising Competition was initiated by the late Cultural & Traditional Advisor Glen Anaquod, from the Muscowpetung First Nation. The Anaquod family previously participated in Tipi Raising Competitions held during Treaty Four celebrations. It was Advisor Anaquod’s long standing wish to involve the University campus community, students and staff by hosting such a competition.

The goals of competition are to provide Aboriginal cultural awareness and present the opportunity to interact and learn in a fun environment. The competition emphasizes the importance of the tipi, culturally and educationally, all the while building the spirit of teamwork.

Competition categories include: High School, Women, Campus & Community.

The University of Regina Aboriginal Student Centre coordinates the competition every year. The annual Tipi Raising Competition is a part of the Cultural & Traditional Awareness program at the ASC. The core of the program is to  educate the University community of the culture and traditions of Aboriginal people, while also providing support to  students, staff and faculty.” (See more)
